      Paul,

      Peter Staple[s] came to Kittery, Maine, about 1670 from England. He married Elizabeth (Beadle) Edwards, widow of Stephen Edwards and daughter of Robert and Mary Beadle.

      Mary was married twice after her marriage to Robert. She next married Rev. Stephen Bachiler, who was 60 years her senior, and third, to Thomas Turner.

      She apparently had an adulterous relationship with her next door neighbor, George Rogers, while she was married to the Rev. Bachiler. She was branded with the letter "A", which she was forced to wear on her dress. Much later, Nathaniel Hawthorne, who frequented the Province House Tavern in Boston, operated by Thomas Waite and his wife, Maria Staples, wrote a book, "The Scarlet Letter", and according to reliable sources, Hester Prynne's saga is patterned after Mary Beadle Bachiler Turner.

      Now there is a story that ought to be of interest in your quest for famous or infamous ancestors.
